Happy homecoming for Vonn in Vail: MRI shows no need for surgery

UPDATE: The MRI conducted on Lindsey Vonn’s knees showed some wear and tear, but nothing that required surgery — all she needs is some R&R. Read more.

Lindsey Vonn had a little fun on Sunday (April 1), but it wasn’t all fun and games.

First, the fun. The town of Vail held a homecoming for the World Cup overall champion at which hundreds, including Olympic Gold Medalist Picabo Street, turned out to cheer Vonn. Street and Vonn, in turn, made sure the crowd honored Sarah Schleper, who announced her retirement from the ski team this season.

The fun continued for Vonn when she met and skied with members of Ski Girls Rock, a program for girls to learn to ski (and more) created by Lindsey.

On the serious side, Vonn discussed her previously undisclosed knee injury with the Vail Daily, saying she expected it to be a minor meniscus issue — but maybe no issue at all. She said she would post an update on her MRI on Facebook.
